I like my salsa hot

I heart Mexican food. I could subsist on it and pizza alone (I am half Italian after all).

Last year I gave you my glowing review of my favorite tortillas that are as close to homemade as you will get at home without making them yourself. (Aja, I am still waiting on yours!) So I thought I would let you know about my favorite salsa, Herdez. I will admit, I passed this in the authentic Mexican section in the store countless times. I am always kind of scared to try something new. (I know, major risk taker here.) But my sister-in-law Kristen had it one night at her house and I about died from freshness! This salsa rocks.

It is moderately chunky, but not too much. It tastes like it was freshly made the day I bought it and is just pretty much awesomely addictive. I buy medium, but the mild is great for those of you who weren't born in Louisiana. :)

I will say, I don't think it is packed with preservatives, so you need to eat it within a week or so of opening. Otherwise, you get the dreaded food mold (please tell me that is not just me) and you have to toss it.

Please let me know when you try this little salsa of heaven! I want to get your reviews, too. Ole!

This is our new favorite too!! I have used the salsa verde to make our chicken enchiladas for couple of years and one day I picked up this one too. It's been love ever since!

And, you know I could totally live on Mexican food and pizza as well. Toss in ice cream too--it's dairy, right?
